Session Types

How Charming Photography and Design photographs those from birth to the Golden Years. My most popular sessions include families, children, high school seniors, couples, sports, corporate and more. I receive a number of special requests — and will do my best to meet my client needs.

Photographs are captured in the location of your choice and are held seven days a week.

Be sure to check below for information an each of these session types … and be sure to note any tips on wardrobe, etc.

FAMILIES and CHILDREN
I love to photograph the relationships that families share … whether it be in a posed (formal) or casual (informal) setting. When scheduling portraits, many often ask what I recommend (clothing wise) for a session. Therefore, I have put together a small ‘wardrobe tips‘ crash course on what I find works best.

SCHOOLS and SPORTS

How Charming Photography and Design works with many schools … in capturing events throughout the school year. These may include yearbook clubs and organizations, sports teams, cap/gown photos, and special events.

Those photographed on these ‘Event Days’ are entitled to specialty-priced packages with FREE shipping. However, the order form with payment MUST be received on or before the day of the scheduled portraits.

Order forms are provided to the school, staff leader, and/or coach in plenty of time for distribution. IF you do not receive an order form prior to the photo date, please contact How Charming Photography asap and Design so I can eMail information to you.

ON LOCATION SCHOOL Portraits
One of my most requested sessions involving Teens is that of  ‘On Location School’ portraits. You still have the traditional photos taken during ‘School Portrait Day’ for yearbook inclusion; however, they opt for something a little different. Portraits are taken ‘on location’ (at your choice) … and this provides an unique background. Photos are taken in fall/winter and some choose to have additional photos taken in spring/summer as well. This builds up a nice collection of portraits leading up to their Senior Year.

YOUNG ADULTS
Many choose to have portraits taken after their senior year for a variety of reasons. Some like to capture memories to give to a boyfriend or girlfriend; some like portraits to simply update their ‘look’; or others like to capture an upcoming event {Special Birthday, Upcoming Wedding, Etc.}. Regardless of the nature, we can capture memories that will last a lifetime. I schedule On Location Portraits seven days/week; therefore, contact me today to schedule.

HIGH SCHOOL SENIORS
To the Class of 2018, senior sessions are NOW underway.

Choose the session that best fits your needs. Have a few dates in mind as popular times book quickly. Due to the on-location nature/travel associated with each session, there are a limited number of  weekend appointments available and some dates are already reserved.

The personalized attention and reliable, efficient service from How Charming Photography & Design plays a big part in making your senior’s portraits look great. Do contact How Charming Photography personally (either by phone, eMail, or Facebook) to answer any questions you have.

  1. For the last 11 years, your school selected the photographer for your school portraits. Now it is your turn to decide and create your own personal ‘Edge’.
  2. Have your photos taken early so you have portraits for senior yearbook ads, to include in fall/winter sports programs, and have available for senior banquet videos. Most yearbooks require images be submitted before winter break in December.
  3. Summer tans will fade quickly once the school year begins. Capture them early summer! No worries about the heat as early morning appointments and early evening/sunset appointments are preferred.
  4. Fall is busy with homecoming, college visits and the holidays; therefore, do not fall into the trap of thinking you will “schedule your appointment later”. Remember, your senior year is going to be much busier than the summer prior to your senior year.
  5. You will want to have wallets available to pass out to friends at school, during sporting events, and at extracurricular events.
  6. You will want to create your own ‘Edge’ – something unique that most of your classmates, so, set the trend by reserving your appointment early.
  7. How Charming Photography offers many extra enhancements. We can create that lasting keepsake celebrating this momentous milestone.
  8. Bring your best friend or your special someone who can help you relax. They can assist you in watching for all the details and to help in creating your unique ‘Edge’. Or if they are a senior and ready to schedule their Senior session, then you can schedule your sessions back-to-back so you can get a little extra ‘photo’ time.
  9. Provide some suggestions on the type of ‘look’ you want to create. If you have seen a portrait example you like, let us know!
  10. If you have an enjoyable experience with How Charming Photography and Design … spread the word. We want to establish long-lasting friendships with our clients and value your patronage. AND we will reward you with a FREE gift.
  11. Bring your smile!!!
